A while back one of my daughters asked me to make a box for her recorder. It didn’t take too long and I made it with scraps that I had laying around. This one is made from Oak and Walnut. It was a fun little project to do. I hope my daughter enjoys it for a long time.

What kind of hinges and clasp did you use? My daughter was just complaining a few minutes ago about carrying her recorder wrapped up in a bandanna. BTW, Ive never heard of a “recorder” until a few days ago…it this new or am I just slow.

Rob, I used simple 3/4×3/4 brass hinges and a clasp that I got from my local Woodcraft store. I think the hinges were National brand (purchased at Ace). I used a brass two part clasp. The top portion has a hinged latch that has a hole in it. The bottom part has a nub on it. The latch is held in place by pressing the latch down on to the nub. Be sure to place the bottom portion down just a hair from where you would think. This way the latch can have a slight friction fit. I’ll post some more pictures showing some of the details. As far as I’m concerned a recorder is nothing more than a glorified whistle. I hope this helped. Take care.
